The bynames are not Latinized, and names that appear in both the Latin and English records have identical or highly similar spellings. (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/lateirish/fitzwilliam.html)

Re Celtic boar, see http://herald.lochac.sca. org/files/came1/1998/09/ came198_09.html (1. Bran Torc Dubh Mac Brude) for a scribal note re the use of a Celtic boar. If required in order to pass, a regular heraldic boar is acceptable.
